xXx: Return of Xander Cage Reviews

  • Mindless VFX, dull acting and no screenplay and story

    Been cursing myself to have watched such mindless video game movie.

    Deepika Padukone is completely misfit and she looks awkward for most of the screen time. Vin Diesel should stick to Fast and Furious franchise, 2002 XXX was much better. Rest of the star cast is assembled to just please the producers "Shanghai Movies".

    There is no story, no screenplay, improper acting, it seems like director has wasted his most of the time in VFX labs than on actual story and screenplay.

    Disgraceful start to 2017, if you want to watch mindless graphical action, better play video game. Disappointed to the core, save your time, money and if you still want to see then be ready to curse yourself...backed by big production house, critics and fake reviews will start floating soon appreciating the movie, beware.

  • Awful Crap That You Can't Unsee

    How do you make a hit film? It's simple. Cast some of the biggest stars in the industry and you are halfway through, add a lot of mindless action, do some promotional stunts (like Vin wearing a Lungi and dancing on a Hindi song) and you are done. Audiences are bound to go crazy.

    I have never been a fan of any of the XXX films but this one I watched for Deepika. But Oh My God, what was I thinking? This film is awful beyond measure. There is nothing to watch. I mean it's the same thing you must have seen at least a hundred times by now. Same clichéd story, same mindless action sequences and people reading their lines like they are mannequins who have been brought to life my some magic. Even the origami did a way better job in Kubo and the two strings and they are made out of paper, mind you.

    People are saying Deepika was good and I completely disagree. I can say that she did a good job with action sequences but her acting was pathetic. In fact there were only one or two people who actually tried to act.

    So, don't waste your money on this awful experience. If you are watching it for Deepika then drop your plans. The screen time she gets is longer than I anticipated but nothing good comes out of it. It is another of those meaningless action films that you forget the moment you walk out of the Cinema. There are better movies playing in theaters that deserve your money instead of this crap. Do something meaningful with your money.

  • Puts the S in Stupid......

    I'm not quite sure why Xander Cage returned, I just wish he hadn't.

    This movie is so low brow, you might mistake it for a caterpillar. It's devoid of anything that looks like a plot or decent character development.

    Instead its cheesy show off time with lots of tat's, juvenile bravado, sparkly overstated jewelry and guns from "da hood". This is a film that feels, in my opinion, like it was made by a 15 year old nick-named "flipper" (as in hamburger flipper) and his gormless, pimply friends. We all know thats not true but you get the idea.

    In short a genuinely excruciating experience that puts the S in Stupid.....one out of ten from me.

  • Lots of Plusses and Minuses

    Sometimes an hour and 40 minutes of non-stop action is not as much fun as it sounds like. On the other hand, films are supposed to entertain and there is more entertainment here than meets the eye.

    This reviewer's scorecard, humbly submitted:

    CONS:

    * Toni Collette completes her mission to distance herself as far as humanly possible from Muriels Wedding 1994. Wish she hadn't even tried.

    * I thought these sort of goofy semi-spoof spy films (where even the writers are not 100% sure whether to play it straight or for laughs) ended with OUR MAN FLINT in 1966. Oops. I was wrong.

    * writing, editing, directing all could have been turned up a notch. Looks like a big rush to get it out there so it could start spinning off cash.

    PROS:

    * Sam Jackson, an actor who film historians of the future will designate the "most overexposed" actor of our generation, gets only a walkon and then is blown up. Finally someone got the memo!

    * stars Vin Diesel, one of the most reliable action figures of our era. This is not in the class of Riddick or Pitch Black, but Vin commits to every role and does not hold back.

    * some really nice stunts. You will think of them fondly when you leave the theatre.

    * introduces Canadian Nina Dobrev to a wider audience. The line to join the fan club starts at the back of the room. And when membership closes, we can start a brand new one for Deepika Padukone.

    * any movie -- repeat, ANY -- that advances Donnie Yen's English language career is a plus. And worthy of our support. (Donnie's English is way better than Jet Li's was, and I wish him many more western roles.)

    * the final action sequence, the climax, runs about 20 minutes and is sort of engaging.

    BOTTOM LINE: Not as bad as the reviews suggest. Not in line for an Oscar either.

  • Honestly DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY

    I cannot believe I actually paid to watch this utter tripe. It is possibly the worst film I have ever seen in my life. If you've any sense do not waste your money like I did. Some of the scenes are just ridiculous. Donne Yen must have been totally desperate for the money considering some of the great films he has made in the past. The female characters are as you would expect very attractive but do not make up for the awfulness of this film. Vin must be sat at home thinking OMG why on earth did I actually make that film as he probably doesn't need the money. The only good part of the film was near the end. The best part of the film was when it had finished and I could get out of the cinema. Honestly I repeat DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

  • This movie made no sense
    by Sauradeep Paul on 16 January 2017

    This movie was awful and a massive waste of time. Physics is apparently non existent. The NSA guards are worse than storm-troopers at shooting. A huge cast but no character development at all. You get no idea of there names as well. The plot makes no sense at all. The acting is all over the place as well. Flying planes, flying cars, flying people and even a goddamn flying boat. Then there are people who definitely should have been killed but still they stay alive and then there are people who died and I don't know how. Overall, one word that perfectly describes this movie is 'pretentious'. It tries to define what's cool and what's not but fails miserably. I wanted to write a sarcastic post about this one, but this stupid movie doesn't deserve that. I hope everyone sues the crap out of the producers for creating such a godawful movie.

  • Poor Screenplay
    by Kopimocha on 2 February 2017

    56 out of 92 people found the following review useful:

    With foreign investments, it did not indicate that the production house had to add in so many unnecessary foreign elements into the movie. Is it even necessary to start off the story in a Chinese restaurant? Where was the link? Foreign elements should be added if they were needed to tell the story and not simply just to please the foreign investors. They only make the story weaker. The story line of the movie was ridiculously unbelievable, and the screenplay was absolutely disappointing. The lines were so pale and redundant. It lacked what a big blockbuster movie should have. No explanation was given for many scenes, and it became very puzzling and exaggerating. This was not a small budget movie, but it turned out to be one brainless movie.

  • Adrenaline Pumping Popcorn Entertainment

    The movie is action-packed from start to end, an incredible action scene happens within the first 10 minutes.. Deepika Padukone makes her debut in Hollywood. She makes no effort in faking an American accent. She plays her character with conviction and originality. The action is well shot and over the top as expected. The jokes are cheesy and perfectly timed. Minor spoilers, there are some cameos and they nailed them..

    Vin Diesel always steals the show.. He is such a Bad ass.. He is energetic, charismatic and 'lives up' to the challenge of presenting the character of Xander Cage with full justice.. Donnie Yen Official: Bad-ass fist fights! Loved his performance.. Ruby Rose charming & such a hardcore lady in a movie.. Nina Dobrev Cute and cutely-hot and she did well for her part. Brilliant direction draws us right into the action and plot.. Brilliant story of world wide terror.. Brilliant stunt work and action sequences... Overall it's been Good to watch this most awaited Movie.. :)

  • Watchable: only if Serena is muted

    As the name indicates, a successor of original XXX. Movie is fine; action stunts, plots, all watchable and enjoyable for once. Only thing that irritates is Deepika Padukone's dialogue delivery. Every time her role comes up, it's like she's narrating a story like a granny. If filming an Indian actress was the only demand then Priyanka Chopra would've been much better.

  • The Worst Movie. Ever.
    by Aveek Ganguly on 14 January 2017

    76 out of 146 people found the following review useful:

    I and two friends of mine spent a lot of money between us to watch this movie today on the day of its release. Apart from wanting to watch Deepika, I had enjoyed the original XXX movie (this one is a sequel), plus I am a huge fan of Vin Diesel.

    However I came out of the theatre in a state of total shock! In my life I have watched thousands of movies, be it from Hollywood or Bollywood or from other parts of the country and the world. But today, and I am putting this down in writing, I got to see the worst movie of my entire life so far!! Yes really, I know what I am saying! So please please please ... try not to watch this movie ... it is so bad that it will make you want to cry. Or it will actually put you to sleep, like with the guy behind us in the theatre who was actually snoring within the first half hour itself!

    The movie has no story. It is not exciting as action films are meant to be, because the action itself is very cartoonish and very boring. It does not even have a proper climax, because it doesn't actually have a real villain who can pose a bit of a challenge to the hero! Yes it has several stunts, but you get to see most of them in the various trailers of this movie on YouTube. Let me put it another way: the best action scenes in this film are very very bad copies of scenes from the Matrix movies, and the two James Bond movies GoldenEye and Die Another Day. Plus the direction too is horrible, which results in many dialogues not being properly audible, poorly lit scenes, extremely erratic editing, poor acting ... or no acting, cos a lot of guys simply standing around doing nothing is not really acting ... this list is endless!

    Last but not the least: Deepika Padukone! Though I have always liked her until now, I still say it is not worth spending money to go and see her in this movie. Firstly her English sounds terrible over here. I have earlier heard Deepika speak English on TV and she sounds smart enough. So why is she speaking with a distinct South Indian accent in this movie ... when her name here is Serena Unger and not Meenamma from Chennai Express ... I mean could she not point out to the director that it would sound ridiculously out of place? Also her role is pretty small and her character is poorly etched out ... and so she doesn't really get a chance to act. And as for her looks in this movie, well, she easily looks much more prettier or glamorous in most of the Hindi films that she has starred in.

    So is this a movie review? Naw, it is more of a warning! Because XXX: Return of Xander Cage is so bad that it is not even a time pass movie. I score it a 1 ... out of 1000!
